In the Spirit of the Moment

I’m a native New Yorker. In 1991 I moved on business to Edmonton, Alberta in Canada, where I now reside. I spend my winters in a small town in Mexico’s Baja peninsula.


Our guide said we had fifteen minutes to explore as our tour boat docked at Spirit Island. The island, located in Maligne Lake in Canada's Jasper National Park, is one of the most scenic spots in the Rockies. It did not bode well for capturing a successful image given the short time on the island and the heavy cloud cover. I headed out on the short loop trail and was surprised by a succession of outstanding compositions.
